Panchanadhana Nataraja : There are five types of stones which are used to make statues of Gods and Goddesses, namely, Aalinga Nadhanam, Panchanadhanam, Singanadhanam, Yaanainadhanam and Yaazhinadhanam. Out of these, Panchanadhanam stones have the ability to absorb sun rays. The root of a plant called Andhaka Narimanam will pierce through and break one in a million stones. Such stones are called Panchanadhana Stones. When struck with a coin, they emit a sound equivalent to "Aum".

  1. Temple main priest does Pooja only to devotees who pay Rs. 3000 for others he asks to wait, today I visited he was kept on talking to a devotee for more than 15 mnts without making arathi I told him we are getting late to visit other temples it's already 10.15 am he said you have to wait they pay more, I just left

    1. What is your opinion or experience on Kidney stone removal by consuming the Theertha. I’m planning to take my mother to that temple next week. Is that belief is true? Atleast you must have heard this from any of your frnds or neighbours...

  2. Hope oottathur authorities appoint more priest to avoid such situation to devotees and warn the main priest

  3. No I have not heard. Belief is God Nmabinor kedivadillai. Try it with full faith at least you can have darshan.
